It’s the peerless experiences and hidden treasure troves you won’t find in the guidebooks that our team is passionate about sharing with you. Out-of-the-way art galleries, hidden bays and speakeasy whiskey bars – these are the places that reveal themselves only to locals. And with so much to explore, stay a little longer with 20% off your room, plus complimentary breakfast for two, when you stay 2 nights or more.
From the moment you arrive you will discover the passion Adelaide has for quality food and wine. Whether dining at one of The Adelaide Hill's finest restaurants - The Lane, loosing yourself in Central Markets amidst passionate providores sampling gourmet produce or taking the short 1-hour trip to the Barossa Valley with many cellar doors to explore, there are so many rich and diverse flavours to try. Walk inside a local’s favourite wine bar, Apothecary 1878, framed with heritage listed architecture and graced with antique chaise lounges and apothecary cabinets, from where the bar gains it’s name.
Immerse yourself into the Fijian culture with some insider experiences, from visiting a local village, to a visit to Sigatoka markets with vibrant flavours of Fiji and Pacific Green's palm wood furniture display room. Truly unique, explore the uninhabited island of Navo where you will wade across the low-tide waters to witness how wildlife of the island survives. For an insider experience, see how locals learn with a visit to Malomalo Primary School. InterContinental Fiji house guests enjoy visits to the school throughout the week. No visit to Fiji would be complete with our hand-feeding the turtles at Kula, Fiji's only wildlife park.
Only one of three cities to be designated by UNESCO as a world city of literature, Melbourne has a rich culture. A local favourite, Books for Cooks houses both new and used books, featuring out of print and hard to find editions on the food arts. The Melbourne Recital Centre is famed as the world best acoustically designed concert hall and has many impressive artists covering an assortment of genres. Stroll through St Kilda with an eclectic mix of shopping, restaurants and bars by the sea. Don’t miss the penguins near the pier at sun-down.
A golf lovers paradise, Sanctuary Cove is home to Australia’s only Arnold Palmer designed golf course, along with The Palms golf course. Poised on a marina, spend the day cruising the local waterways up to Hope Island and beyond. Outside the resort choose from well-known Gold Coast theme parks, pristine beaches or Mount Tamborine, where you will find the tranquil Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk, cellar doors and the decadent fudge store.
Sydney is home to some unmistakable experiences. From the more well-known iconic experiences of shucking oysters at Sydney Fish Markets or climbing Sydney Harbour Bridge with views from Sydney’s most memorable vantage point to the equally as impressive, albeit far less well-known, Baxter’s Inn speakeasy whisky bar reminiscent of a 1920’s saloon. Hop aboard a seaplane, hugging the coastline to Cottage Point, where you will find one the locals’ best kept secrets, The Cottage Point Inn.
Wellington is a hidden gem in itself, one of the smaller major cities with all the cosmopolitan luxuries you would expect. Whether you find yourself on a tour around the coastline to see the local seals in their natural habitat or step into middle earth at Weta studios home of Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit empires, there is a diverse and intriguing range of experiences to enjoy. Not to be missed is the city's iconic cable car, at the top is the expansive Botanical Gardens, the Carter Observatory and a fantastic view across Wellington.
